Whoo hooo! Update time!
Alas, despite my promises, this update isn't really the big step forward I had been hoping.
Instead, most of the update concerns a "meanwhile" scene where you're not present.
I originally planned to show the story exclusively from your perspective, but this scene doesn't really give anything away that you shouldn't already know anyway.
Besides, I think fleshing out some of the other characters might make the game more fun and make it feel more cinematic.
However, as for your current predicament, the course of action we're taking is one suggested initially by Findswoman
, which was supported by Darth Delicious
, The Spectre
suggestion of giving him money was in the same vein and Ryan
was up for giving him either.
Oh, and thanks to smartypants
for participating, too. He also agreed with the majority.
was really left out in the cold, overrode by the rest of the group.
And newcomer Jedistyle
made the unique suggestion of checking out the Imperial comlink first.
As always, I try to incorporate as many non-contradictory suggestions as possible.
Okay, confession time. I put the drunk guy in there really for one main reason - to demonstrate the usefuless of your inventory.
You're currently carrying around quite a lot of stuff. Unlike those old "King's Quest" games, none of those items was designed around a specific use.
So don't be afraid to use that stuff and be creative. In this case, either using money or the booze to bribe the drunk would have worked, as would have using your toolkit to jigger the elevator yourself.
However, having the drunk on your side may yield more benefits down the line, so giving him the alcohol seems like a good idea.
So thanks to all the players. Great to have so many returning players and a few newcomers, too!
Now, there really isn't much of a pressing need for input here, since, in the next installment, the drunk will finish fixing the elevator and you'll be on your way. So jump in if you like, otherwise, I'll just get the next chapter up as soon as possible.
